The first event for the 2020 year was a single stroke event and also was the first of two rounds for the Foundation Cup. Our sponsor for the day was Jason Lawer who not currently a member, was a very good junior golfer at the club and managed to bring the same talent into the senior ranks. The club thanks Jason for his continued interest in the club and hope to see him back on the fairways.
